Starlink Digital Edition $44.99 Deluxe Digital Edition $59.99 on PSN and Xbox Live

While the physical edition has already been on sale the digital editions are now 25% off on PSN and Xbox Live. Supposedly the Switch Digital Version will also be this price too but it is not confirmed or live yet as far as I know. I believe it will be live on 11/22.

The main difference between the physical and digital version is the physical version comes with the toys but less in game content. The digital version had no toys but much more in game content. So it really depends if you want the physical toys are not. But if not, then digital is a way better deal. The links are for the regular version but if you want the Deluxe it's available too.

Here's the differences between the two:

Physical also means it can be re-sold or passed along to younger relatives, either just the game or the game and toys. Single-game toys-to-life doesn't have a very good history of retaining its value as time goes on, but if you want an Arwing on your shelf, it might be worth it to you to forego the extra ships in-game.

I don't think the PS4 or Xbox physical versions are nearly as good a value, since they only come with one ship (one life), and the physical toy ship is native to Starlink rather than the much more iconic Star Fox.

I agree the only physical version of the game worth getting is the Switch version if you want the Arwing. But you get much more of the in game stuff buying buying digital that it just doesn't seem worth it to buy physical for me personally in this case.

I've been on the fence. If I can get the $35 deal at Best Buy, I'll take the physical edition. In that case, I'm not sure whether or not I'll just immediately sell the cartridge on eBay and buy the digital edition (best of both worlds), or possibly get another digital ship set (though that has limited utility). I'm OK with the increased difficulty of limited ships, and plenty of people on Twitter seem to be enjoying it just fine with the just the physical starter. (See @StarlinkSwitch [twitter.com] on Twitter). But the additional ships, weapons, and characters add variety to the game, which might make it more interesting and enjoyable from that angle. It might depend on how much the bare cartridge is worth on eBay after all the Black Friday sales settle.

i'll probably pick up the PS4 digital deluxe soon. Don't particularly care about StarFox, or for tolerating (per reviews) the weaker graphics and occasional lag on the Switch version.

I bought the physical Switch version when it was $35 at BB. Planning to flip it and keep the ship and then buy the digital Switch version when it's also $45 on Thursday. But for people who want the PS or Xbox version I think this is the way to go.
